Instructions

Step 1

Download the laundry sorter stencils. Enlarge them to the desired size and print. Have an office supply store soft laminate the printouts. (If you would like the stencils larger than your printer will allow, an office supply store can enlarge, print, and soft laminate them for you.) Place the stencils on a cutting mat and cut out the stencils using a crafts knife.

Step 2

Remove laundry bags from the holder. Iron as necessary. Spray one stencil lightly with spray adhesive according to the label instructions. Center the stencil onto the laundry bag using painter's tape to hold it down as necessary.

Step 3

Dip the brush in paint (blot onto a paper towel to remove excess paint.) Fill the stencil in with thin coats until the desired effect is achieved.

Step 4

Remove the stencil. Repeat with the remaining laundry bags and stencils.
